Trends & data overview

OECD.AI compares policy responses and provides data and metrics on AI to inform policy.

It is critical yet challenging to keep abreast of developments and trends in a rapidly evolving field like AI. Across the OECD, measurement work on AI development and adoption is happening in areas like scientific publications, R&D funding, patents, open-source software, private equity investments in AI start-ups and more.
